The Aquarium-Museum in Liège will take you on a wonderful journey through the animal and aquatic worlds, featuring fish from around the world.
This scientific and tourism centre, dedicated to the aquatic world and animal biodiversity, is situated on the Quai Édouard Van Beneden, a 7 minutes-walk from the Liège-Guillemins TGV station.
The Aquarium's 50 tanks are home to 2,500 fish. Amongst them the legendary piranhas, the clown fish in their anemones, the blind cave dwelling fish, the stonefish... Let alone the blacktip reef sharks and baby dogfish! A wonderful (but dry!) immersion in the ocean, sea, lake and rivers worlds.
The museum, in turn, showcases the riches and beauty of the animal kingdom. 20000 specimens either preserved stuffed or as skeletons: from the smallest flea to the largest whale, via an anaconda, spiders, shells, a stuffed bear, even chimpanzees and other primates.
During your visit, why not try La Requine, the Aquarium-Museum's delicious beer?
Available in French, Dutch, German and English.
Whether you're 2 years old or 102 years old, the aquarium-museum in Liège is sure to fascinate you!
